Guess what? It is time. The Arizona Cardinals host the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday Night Football. That means Carrie Underwood, Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth and a national stage. The Cardinals are coming off a huge win on Sunday Night Football, defeating the Seattle Seahawks 39-32 at CenturyLink Field. Cincinnati is coming off a prime time game as well, losing 10-6 to the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football.
Neither team is at full strength, with both teams missing starters for tonight's game.
But it is time to hopefully see the Cardinals establish themselves as a legitimate championship contender. The Carson Palmer story has been discussed. The Andy Dalton in prime time games has come up.
Now it is time for real football.
